Sugar Nellie-Diane Duda Blog Hop!!!

Hey everyone. Welcome to the Sugar Nellie blog hop featuring the brand new stamps from Diane Duda. Her style is very whimsical and fun. If you started on my blog, be sure to stop at the Sugar Nellie blog, that is were all of the fun began! If you came by my blog from Kim's blog, you are on the right track. I have also heard that there may be some prices, so you will most definitely want to check the other blogs out.

I was lucky enough to get one of these stamps in advance and play with it a little bit. There are some pretty talented stampers participating in this hop, so I am thrilled to be a part of it. Thanks you so much to Karen from Sugar Nellie for setting this up. Hopefully you all will like what I have come up with.

If you aren't familiar with Sugar Nellie stamps, you can find them at Funky Kits. Sugar Nellie is a Scottish company. These stamps are unmounted. This means you will need to either use double sided tape and put them on your acrylic block, or mount them on EZ mount which will then cling to your block. Remember that if you are an international customer you can only order up to 10 stamps per order. I have many of their stamps and have only good things to say about them. I love the way they stamp, they are some of the best quality stamps that I have used. Also, you will be able to order the new Diane Duda stamps on Friday, June 19. I know that I will be ordering some more of her stamps. I should also mention that the shipping from Scotland is very quick, I have had all orders arrive to me in around a week!

Like I said, I am so excited to have been a part of this blog hop. So on with it!

The stamp I received is called "Frog Prince."

Before I started stamping, or even scrapbooking I was really into oragami. I wanted to make a box with the stamp featured on the top of it. I tried to get the best picture I could of it.

And a couple more shots of it:

And last a card that I made to show the entire image.

All images are colored with copic markers. The ciao is R20, that is my usual for cheeks. I used some Sassafrass Lass scrapbook paper to put my box together. It is a very thick paper, so the box should hold up pretty well. I love the deep turquoise and the yellow together on those papers. The ribbon is from my stash, I was very drawn to my sheer ribbons with this challenge, huh? Here are the colors that I used for the box:

I used up some remnants from a Studio Calico kit for the card along with some ribbon that I had in my stash. I also used a bit of Stickles for the crown. And for the card here are the colors:


Be sure to continue the blog hop onto to Janny's blog.

Thanks to everyone for stopping by, enjoy the rest of the stops!
